It is a static site (it uses Ruby for now to generate pages, sorry about that). Projects are sorted by “categories” and each category is mapped to a simple TOML file. Under the hood, a background process fetches the metadata from crates.io and GitHub to display information and also automatically sort projects based on a combination of crates.io downloads, GitHub stars, and forks.
The website doesn’t have too much content right now but I’m working on fixing that. Also, it is easy to contibute.
PS: Happy Deepavali everyone!
